Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hilary hates Jews. As part of a neo-Nazi gang in her town, she's finally found a sense of belonging. But when she's critically injured in an accident, everything changes.

Somehow, in her mind, she has become Chana, a Jewish girl fighting for her own life in the ghettos and concentration camps of World War II.

Han Nolan offers powerful insight into one young woman's survival through the Holocaust and another's journey out of hatred and self-loathing.

Reader's guide and an interview with the author included.


A neo-Nazi teen is transported back in time to World War II Poland, where she is now a Jewish girl in a Nazi ghetto.

About the Author

HAN NOLAN has won many awards for her teen fiction, including the National Book Award for Dancing on the Edge. She lives in New England.

This book is one of the best books that I've ever read. I love reading books about the Holocaust and what the Jews went through. This is one of my favorite ones. I love how it has a German girl experienceing what a Jewish girl went through, and how it changed her.

This is the best book I have read in a long time.
I loved it.
I would read it again and again if it didn't belong to the library:]
It made me cry in some places because the details were just so wonderful.
This book only took me a few days to read.
I could NOT put it down.
I told lots of my friends about it and everything.
I am so glad I chose to do this book on a project last year in middle school.
As I've said, I loved this book.
So, Tell people about.
Tell them to read it and see what they say to you.
Every person I have requested this to has loved it.
I hope everyone else likes it as much as I do:]
